If you have used command prompt (Start > cmd) in Windows, you will know that any keyboard shortcut (ex. copy is Ctrl+C) that you normally use in other application is prohibit in Windows command prompt. Hence you can’t copy and paste any text inside command prompt. I don’t know why Microsoft choose not to enable this function. Lately this limitation becomes increasingly irritating, when I’m working on a application with Ruby on Rails that requires a lot command line actions.
So I found a solution that let’s you enable keyboard shortcut Ctrl + V to paste inside Windows Command Prompt.

If you aren’t sure what to do with the above code you can download this script and run the script, assume you have AutoHotkey already installed on your machine.
So now while have this utility running you can copy any text and use the keyboard shortcut to paste it inside your Command Prompt.
